Fifth and last iteration of dv_vd nights for 2017-2018, a fruitful collaboration between Vidéographe and Dazibao, Sharing One’s Own Face is a project by French researcher and artist Lucie Szechter made from Vidéographe’s collection as part of a research and curatorial residency.
Sharing One’s Own Face, considers the issues raised by the face in the practice of filming the self. She uses the term ‘filming the self’ in a broad sense as self-filming occurs as soon as the filmmaker is present on screen in his or her own film. During this residency, Lucie Szechter will specifically try to answer the question ‘what is it to film oneself as someone else?’ using a body of videographic works selected from Vidéographe’s collection.
Programme to come.
